A special ‘Science’ assembly

Science teachers from Wingfield Academy fascinated the children with a range of experiments and information in a special assembly all about space. The children really enjoyed the different experiments that the teachers showed them.

EASTER BONNET PARADE

On Friday we had a special Easter Bonnet parade.  Lots of children had been working very hard at home to makes some spectacular bonnets – they all looked amazing and the children were very proud to share their creations.  The audience loved looking at the finished designs and shared their thoughts about how lovely they all looked.

South Yorkshire Cheerleading final

On Friday 22nd March Thornhill’s Cheerleading Squad competed in the South Yorkshire School Games. They ‘danced’ to an 1980s theme. They were very colourful and their costumes were admired by many of the spectators. They came an extremely impressive 4th out of 10 teams. 

Y6 activity day at the EIS

Last week all the children in Year 6 went to the English Institute of Sport with several other local schools.  While there, they took part in 24 different activities, supported by Sports Leaders from Winterhill and Wingfield.  One of our children proudly achieved 3rd place in the 100 metre; an amazing achievement considering the number of children that took part.  A fun and tiring day was had by all.

CONDUCTIVE MUSIC

This term, Year 5/6 were lucky enough to take part in 2 Conductive Music Sessions. They learnt how to code and programme a QuirkBot using some online software. They made a light saber and a musical instrument from the Quirkbot. Children were able to code the QuirkBot so the lights would flash at different speeds and in different orders. Each part of the QuirkBot was also able to play different notes. The children really enjoyed the sessions and learnt something exciting and new! 

ROTHERHAM CHEERLEADERS FINAL

On Friday 8th March Thornhill Cheerleaders competed in the Rotherham Final’s with their 1980s theme. They came 2nd and will now represent Rotherham in the School Games to be held at the EIS.

As it was science week last week, MAGNA have shared some exciting experiments to try.  Why not have a go!  Please be very careful if you are doing the second experiment as it asks you to boil some cabbage. If you are going to have a go at this experiment please get an adult to do the boiling for you. Please be careful of the boiling water and hot cabbage. Take care. 

Enjoy experimenting!
